Ar Log LP
The triple harp (or triple-strung harp) became popular in Wales in the 18th century and is often called the Welsh Triple Harp, or telyn deires. For those of you not familiar with this instrument, a triple harp has three parallel rows of strings. The two outer rows are tuned diatonically, like the strings on most other harps. The middle row is tuned to the accidentals (sharps and flats), and you reach between the strings of the outer row to get to them. The triple harp is very popular in Welsh folk and traditional music.

Back in the late 1970s, I met two amazing triple harpists, brothers Dafydd and Gwyndaf Roberts of the traditional Welsh band Ar Log. I was touring as a member of Robin Williamson and His Merry Band, and we performed at several European folk festivals where they were also on the roster. Of course, since we had a "harp connection," we became great friends.
